Lakers trying to get rid of Gasol, how about Jefferson and CJ for him? I heard Evan Turner might be available in a trade for Jefferson. There would have to be other considerations money wise for that to work out but I would make either of those in a heartbeat.

Instead of going with the young guys Corbin is giving less and less minutes to Favors and Kanter. Corbin is more interested in his won/loss record than the future of the team.

It's good to see Korver going off after the Jazz kicked sand in his face, he wanted to stay but Jazz made it clear they didn't want him. How quickly KOC forgot the way the Jazz turned around when they acquired him.

Disturbingly pathetic!

Lakers wouldn't part with Gasol for Jefferson and CJ, but they might if Millsap was involved in place of one of the two others. Before the season started, I was hoping the Jazz might get Gasol's younger bro but Memphis resigned him. I would also like a Jefferson for Turner trade. I think Favors is getting decent minutes, but yeah, Kanter isn't. As for Korver, he had a real good game tonight, but he is still a poor defender. Don't forget that Korver was really good the first month after he joined the Jazz partly because they played an easy part of their schedule during that time. And, of course, he was popular for other reasons.

I'm anxious to watch the development of Alec Burks and Derrick Favors.

The 2 possible 2012 lotto picks are looking nice about now.

The trade deadline should be interesting.

It is a complete waste of a season to not give the young guys minutes. Stupid, stupid waste. Larry would never, ever allow this.

More importantly, Alberta and Ontario are going to the brier final. Mens' curling at it's finest.

@ Scalman, I would give up Milsap and Jefferson for Gasol but the Lakers would have to throw in something to make the money match up. As for Korver, they picked him up mid-season so I don't think you can use the weak schedule routine. They were terrible until they got him and something like .667 for the rest of the season. Also it wasn't like any Jazz player played defense anyway.

@ Shaybo, we are both right on Korver's first season...the Jazz played the hardest part of their schedule just before they got him. Also, the Jazz had two other fine outside shooters in Okur and Williams (who also was great zipping passes to people. So, Korver was wide open lots. Anyway, don't you remember how he would disappear against good teams. I was hoping like a lot of posters here that CJ would pick up his game as the team's deep threat when Korver left, but that's only happening occasionally.

@scalman, We had all the other outside threats before Korver came and were losing until the instant he joined the team. Just his threat totally opened things up inside.
